This time of year gets so awkward when it comes to dressing. I'll find myself freezing in the morning and boiling hot in the afternoon, not knowing what to do with myself! I've found the key to surviving the Autumn/Winter transition is lots of layering! However, layering with basics can be boring, so I have trawled super-cute store Joules to find some alternatives to boring transitional basics.
Tip 1: Always carry a scarf
Jubilee one is gorgeous and has tiny little foxes hidden within the print!
Tip 2 - Tunics are your friends
Dark Topaz Floral one, which is great for day-to-night transitions
The same rule applies to jumper dresses and I love this structured one which is more flattering to curvy figures than a regular jumper dress
Tip 3 - Embrace jumpers (especially silly ones)
This is a personal favourite of mine. Always have a jumper to hand to layer up with, especially if it is silly or starts a conversation! I have a Joules dog jumper already which is so thick and snuggly, but this is the new season design and I love it! The design modelled here by Beckydazzler is my one!
But I think Joules should make some with Miniature Pinschers on like my Teddy
Tip 4 - Blouses make transitional workwear easier
A floppy blouse is so easy to style up for this season. I like to wear them loose over skinny jeans with vest tops underneath; or tucked into a thick, high-waisted skirt. Sometimes I even wear tights under jeans with a baggy top over to cover the two waist lines (I am a very cold soul!). This one with birdies on makes a nice change from the basics
Tip 5 - wear some fun jewellery
So this does nothing to keep you warm, but look! A sheep bracelet with fence!
Tip 6 - a jacket is important
ladies tweed jackets in Joules. Plus the cut is super-vintage and feminine. Cute!
